It’s a new week, meaning there is a new batch of weekly challenges to cross off your list in Fortnite. As part of season 4 week 10, one challenge requires you to catch seven fish at a place called Heart Lake. It’s unmarked on the map, so you’ll probably need to be pointed in the right direction.
Fortunately, we’ve got all the details on where to find Heart Lake and how to catch fish there. Here’s how to catch seven fish at Heart Lake in Fortnite.
Where to find Heart Lake
Arguably the most difficult part about this challenge is finding Heart Lake and getting set up to fish. This spot is found just north of Stark Industries, within the large circle of this area. The lake … sort of looks like a heart. If you squint and step back 10 feet or so. Nonetheless, boot up the match of your choice (squad modes are best so your team can watch your back) and land at the small dock on the north side of the lake where you’ll find a barrel of fishing lines. You’ll now be ready to start fishing.
How to catch fish at Heart Lake
To start fishing, you need to grab a fishing pole. You’ll find some in a barrel on the dock to the north of Heart Lake. There are a few other barrels in this area, so run around the shore and see what you can find. After you’ve grabbed your pole, toss your line with the right trigger where you see a school of fish to guarantee a catch. Wait for the controller to vibrate and then press the trigger again to reel it in.
Keep doing this until all the fish in the school are gone. Try to find another school of fish, but if you can’t, you’ll need to just throw your line in the water and hope for a bite. You’ll almost always get something, but it’s not guaranteed to be a fish if you don’t toss your line at a school. Either way, you should be close after catching all the fish from a school, so keep trying, while being cognizant of the storm and other players who might also be going for the challenge. Here’s a video of us catching fish at Heart Lake.
Sometimes you’ll get guns or useless items like cans, but keep at it and you’ll catch seven fish in just a few minutes. If you get eliminated before you can grab seven, you can try again in another match. As with most weekly challenges in Fortnite, this one is cumulative, meaning you don’t need to catch all seven in a single game. After your seventh catch, you’ll gain credit for completing the challenge and be rewarded with 25,000 XP.
